ABSTRACT
Specific search tools, which are more sensitive to determining accurate values regarding the increasing amount of toxic substance, in the environment that affects human life, are needed to control pollution. Air pollution is a highly variable phenomenon, influenced by several factors – space and time. Automatic detectors in monitoring stations, for the monitoring of air pollution is essential for areas such as large urban centres, it is a complex action due to a series of reasons. In the Jiu Valley, biomonitoring the air quality is based on the altering of components of normal ecosystems from pollution, the combined effects of multiple pollutants on the biotic component can be estimated. Identifying the vulnerabilities in the Jiu Valley is the aim of this paper, determining appropriate measures to reduce pollution through bioindicators.
